2007 Volvo S60 2.5T 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)
I recently purchased this vehicle as preowned and after reviewing other consumer reports and reviews, and I am very pleased with it so far. I agree with what other people have noted and it seems pretty accurate far as performance and drivability goes for most drivers like me ( everyday commute for BASIC entry level luxury sedan). It has very nice standard features as noted in specs and does seem utilitarian overall and not as sophisticated as a BMW or Lexus but it seems more functional and solid. I would highly recommend it for someone with kids or someone looking for value in a sedan with good standard features and known for safety.
clear utilitarian design with good quality interior. comfortable front seats (not so good in the back). good basic stereo speakers. handles okay. the turbo does lag slightly but it's adequate for passing or quick acceleration.
no rear leg room. could use a smoother ride (better suspension?) mpg around 22-23 in normal driving.
